Thailand has the second-highest obesity rate in south-east Asia, largely due to the fact that its delicious cuisine can be rather greasy.Since people in Thailand are unlikely to change the food they eat, the Thai Health Promotion Foundation and BBDO Bangkok decided to tackle how they eat their food.We first saw this campaign over at Adweek.And so the "AbsorbPlate" was born.The design of the plate was inspired by the surface of a sponge and contains hundreds of tiny holes to allow oil to slip away from a meal and be absorbed at the bottom.The promotional video claims the plate can soak up about 7 ml of oil, or 30 calories on average, from each meal.Here's the full ad:NOW WATCH: How to see everything Google knows about youLoading video...
That follows customer cancellations of about 8,000 cars and 4,200 duplicates canceled by the company.Company executives had previously indicated reservations totaling about 400,000, without giving an absolute number.The reservations have been coming organically, without a promotional push since the March 31 unveiling.Meanwhile, Tesla said, its existing models are still very much for sale."If we wanted to, we believe that we could further increase the number of Model 3 reservations with minimal effort but believe it is better to guide customers to purchase products currently in production," Tesla said in the filing.The $1.4 billion sale of shares falls within most Wall Street expectations after Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk indicated earlier this month that the company would need to raise "some combination of equity and debt and make sure the company has a good buffer of cash."The company says it plans to make 500,000 units of the Model 3 by 2018.Earlier today, shares had climbed 3.2 percent after Goldman Sachs Group Inc. estimated Tesla would require only about $1 billion in additional capital.
The acquisition means that BeMyEye s crowd is now 250,000 person-strong and, according to the company, makes it the market leader in Europe for real world mobile crowdsourced data insight .The startup s founders, Livio Lumbroso and Colin Valière, are also staying on to play a part in BeMyEye s growth going forwards.Ultimately, we want to offer as many people as possible a new way to earn money and we want to improve the way they perceive work by making it fun, rewarding and on their terms.He also says the idea for the startup was informed by BeMyEye founder and Chairman Gian Luca Petrelli s experience running the family olive oil business after it managed to secure a promotional campaign with Wholefoods.If only someone could have visited the store, taken a photograph and sent it to him…To that end, the types of tasks that have been crowdsourced through BeMyEye include checking in-store promotions and prices, generating sales leads, and gathering street level data for mapping enrichment.Meanwhile, for the businesses that use the BeMyEye platform, the draw is that they get access to people and locations with unparalleled precision and, thanks to the proliferation of smartphones, in a way that was unthinkable only a few years ago .
The Preacher ParodyOne of the more intriguing and highly anticipated new TV shows of the summer is AMC s The Preacher.Set to premiere this coming Sunday, the show follows former criminal Jesse Custer played by Dominic Cooper who, in an effort to get his life back on track, returns to his Texas hometown to become a preacher.Developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, AMC has been promoting the series hard in recent weeks.Commercials for the show are plentiful and AMC just this week released video of the first four minutes of the first episode.Seth Rogen wasn t satisfied with just being executive producer and director of the new AMC original series, Preacher, the video description reads.For those intrigued in what may very well be AMC s next hit show, we ve already reviewed the first four episodes and, suffice it to say, this is definitely a show worth keeping an eye on.
Knocking lamps off tables, pissing in shoes and scratching the shit out of just about anyone.That s not on my things-to-do-if-I-was-a-cat-for-a-day list, but the Licki Brush suggests it may be at the top of other people s.It s a fake tongue with a rough, scratchy texture that you can use to groom the grumpy little felines in your life, without getting furballs in your mouth/lungs/stomach.The guy in the promotional video sort of looks like he s stroking his kitty with a giant, flattened, cream-filled meowth did you like that one?Though you won't get to actually taste the shit your cat's been rolling around in, your nose will get a good sense of what it's been getting up to and your neck will get a mean workout.There s no word on how much the Licki Brush will cost if it ever goes into production, but a Kickstarter is coming soon.That'll obviously be followed by multiple theme café openings, and before you know it, cat-licking will be considered a more acceptable public act than breast-feeding.

A Rakuten delivery drone to be used on a Japanese golf course is seen in a promotional video from the company.Drone operators should also not use personal data without consent for employment eligibility, promotion, or retention; credit eligibility; or health care treatment eligibility other than when expressly permitted by and subject to the requirements of a sector-specific regulatory framework.NTIA warns that the best practices proposed should not be construed to limit or diminish freedoms guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution, or replace or take precedence over any local, state, or federal law or regulation.It announced draft rules in February last year which placed, among other things, limits on the size and height to which drones can fly, and also included curbs on their flights at nights and away from the visual line-of-sight of operators.The best practices can help promote Department of Commerce priorities by allowing the drone industry "to grow, develop and innovate while helping to build consumer trust," said Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker, in a statement.Drone and industry groups have welcomed the new recommendations.

Called Rise of Iron, the poster shows the character Lord Saladin holding a large hammer/axe and standing among several wolves, in what could be one of the game's Earth locations.Assuming the poster is legit, this could be part of the promotional material we see next month at E3 when the expansion is officially announced.The image was first posted to Reddit last night, while Kotaku confirmed its authenticity and additional information about the DLC with its sources.It was already confirmed earlier this year that developer Bungie is working on a full-fledged sequel to Destiny, and that it was pushed back from a release this fall to sometime in 2017.However, it's not clear at this point if this new DLC will match the amount of content and quality-of-life improvements that we saw with last September's release of The Taken King.Hopefully an announcement at E3 will include a trailer that reveals more details on how the Iron Banner and/or Iron Lords will be the focus of the new expansion.

A system that monitors swearing and general fury on parts of the internet could lead to lower chocolate prices in Australia, as the makers of the Snickers sugar lump have started dropping the price as people get madder.They're using a thing someone thought to call the Hungerithm, a method of monitoring social media posts and translating the frequency of swear words, sad face emoticons and whines at major corporations into a hunger index -- one that generates a promotional bar code with a higher value when internet anger is high, letting users print it out and save a few pence off the price some chocolate.It's basically just an advert for sweets tied into the internet and the modern day hobby of being literally furious about the tiniest of things all of the time, albeit one with a tangible benefit for fans of the dense nutty treat.And are happy to be on the internet all day and suffer the misery of turning on the printer and trying to make the sodding thing work if it means saving 15p.Hungerithm via Mashable Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.
I've been bouncing around different events in Columbus, OH and haven't seen too many products that stand out.I think my favorite thus far has been a company that was located at the entrance of the show and pass out bags to carry promotional products from other companies.Their bright orange bags were visible all afternoon.Just wanted to see if you guys had any favorite items or games that you utilize!

Increasingly, consumers are more interested in seeing what other consumers have to say than they are in reading your own self-promotional puff pieces.It s far more powerful when other people that aren t on your payroll are saying it, says Jeev Trika, CEO of CrowdReviews.com.Super Bowl ads aren t going to impress -- but what will reach this audience is a lively conversation thread, real reviews by their peers and a company that takes time to respond to their social comments, Trika says.Use right-brained, creative tactics that go beyond the numbers.There are two great fallacies that lead to tepid results in content marketing.The younger and more tech-savvy demographic in particular will respond more positively to organic user reviews from their peers than they will respond to a Madison-Avenue-generated television commercial.
Collapsed payments unicorn Powa Technologies will likely leave at least £110 million $160.7 million of debts unpaid, according to an analysis of documents by BI.New documents filed with Companies House show former management expect just £1 million to be recovered from the business, which was once valued at £1.8 billion.That will barely dent the huge loans taken on by the business, not to mention the £14 million of trading debts, and £1 million owed to UK staff.Powa raised more than $200 million £136 million in debt and equity funding over 3 years.READ: Inside the crash of London's $2.7 billion unicorn PowaThe new documents also shed light on Powa's spending, showing the company:ran up debts of over £150,000 with its PR company;owed almost £50,000 to the Twickenham rugby stadium and Rugby's governing body;and ran up debts of at least £4.7 million with mobile developers.So-called "Statement of Affairs" documents prepared by Powa's management after administrators were appointed, estimate how much the business is theoretically worth, how much money can realistically be recovered, and how much debt the company owes.Documents have been filed for both Powa Technologies Group, the overall holding company which raised money, and UK trading company Powa Technologies Ltd, which owned the bulk of the technology and conducted business.The document for the group company shows that, when intergroup loans and internal business are discounted, management expects £137.25 million of debts to be left unpaid.The list of Powa's trading creditors sheds some light on what the business was spending money on:Office space: Powa owed a combined £3.9 million to various subsidiaries of temporary office space provider Regus around the world — from Jakarta to Milan.Flame represented Powa in the UK but a source close to Flame told BI that the company's remit was extended globally in October last year.That more or less stacks up with my analysis of what Powa likely spent all its money on.The documents are believed to have been prepared by Powa's then CFO Steven Taylor and were signed off by Powa's former board, including founder and CEO Dan Wagner, and administrators Deloitte.The bulk of the £1 million former management expects Deloitte to be able to recover from the business comes from selling off stock held by the company, as well as office furnishings."He also argued that much of the Wellington debt, including the £67 million in unsecured shareholder loans, "should be discounted because they were investments rather than trading creditors and the two things are very different.Administrators Deloitte, Boston-based Wellington Management, and Flame PR all declined to comment on BI's figures.SEE ALSO: Topless dancers, champagne, and David Bowie: Inside the crash of London's $2.7 billion unicorn PowaSEE ALSO: There's a huge unanswered question in the collapse of Powa Technologies — where did the money go?SEE ALSO: The autopsy on the collapse of $2.7 billion Powa Technologies is out — here are the key pointsNOW WATCH: Here s the one affordable habit ultra-successful people shareLoading video...
Shooting stars, meteors, and full-on meteor showers are wonders to behold.These celestial light shows occur when gas, dust, and space debris burn up in Earth's atmosphere.But they don't happen as often as we might like, nor do they predictably occur exactly when and where we'd like them to.So a startup called ALE, with scientific collaborators from Japanese universities, wants to manufacture shooting stars with a sky-high project called "Sky Canvas."You can kind of see how it would work in this promotional video they made:ALE's plan is to launch a satellite about 310 miles up, where it would release 500 to 1,000 pellets — each containing different elements to make them burn up in different colors.Once the pellets fly one-third of the way around the Earth, they'd reenter the atmosphere about 40 miles up and ignite, becoming tiny shooting stars.The company has tested the pellets in the lab, and reported they could be bright enough to see even under the glow of city lights.A number of news outlets reported that the company planned to open the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony with their artificial meteor shower, but ALE said that isn't the case."However, our product is still in development and we have not formally talked to the Olympic committee so any articles claiming that we 'will' or that we have 'already bid / proposed' are technically false."But would this actually work?Aerospace engineer and space debris expert Hugh Lewis, from the University of Southampton, told Tech Insider that creating an artificial meteor shower is possible.Doing so at the altitude ALE is planning to, however, could be problematic.More from Tech Insider:This incredible new first-person shooter is perfect for newcomers and veterans alikeThis Bill Gates-backed veggie burger is the best one you can buy in a grocery storeThe most innovative desserts the inventor of the Cronut has dreamed upHere s how long to wait before you text your crush backPeugeot's throwback race car concept is beautiful and innovativeNOW WATCH: Here's what you actually see while you're watching a meteor showerLoading video...
